Investigation of noobed material for aerospace applications

Reference number 2018-04795
Coordinator RISE SICOMP AB - Swerea SICOMP AB, Linköping
Funding from Vinnova SEK 125 000
Project duration December 2018 - June 2019
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

The project intends to investigate how the "noobed material" from Fureho could be used in a component of a coupling/fitting structure aimed for aerospace applications, what mechanical characteristics are achieved as well as a cost estimate of coupling/fitting component made from "noobed material".

Expected results and effects

The project strengthens Fureo´s knowledge of applications and requirements in the aerospace industry as well as create a relationship with a potential customer. It will increase customers understanding of Fureho´s "noobmed material". RISE SICOMP it will develop skills in the field of 3-D fiber reinforced composites, which will benefit several Swedish companies operating in this area. Also, being able to use lightweight materials for this type of applications will contribution to increased sustainability, as transportation becomes lighter and thus reduces energy consumption.

Planned approach and implementation

RISE SICOMP will conduct an optimization of the coupling component limited to one of Fureho´s most common “noobed material” architectures and based on a predefined load case, obtained from a customer. The results will be applied by Fureho to design a "noobed material" architecture for the coupling component and make a cost analysis/estimate based on the "noobed material" design.
